Depositional Analogues

Depositional Provinces and Analogues

Examples of different sedimentary depositional settings, including carbonates and clastics, that might be used as analogues. They are portrayed by a mix of photographs, maps, diagrams and descriptions of both ancient and modern sedimentary systems including:
